Two NYPD cops were assassinated on Brooklyn streets by a crazed gunman who publicly bragged about his plans after shooting his girlfriend in another city.
For months I’ve been pointing out the two halves of the “Culture of Death” – the “progressive” who sees no value in the sanctity of human life from conception to natural death, and the jihadi who thinks he’s going to heaven for killing the innocent. Given their collusion with each other – consciously or unconsciously, they have created a culture that is completely foreign to the natural order where it is known that “all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator…” They insist on a two class society of rulers and the slaves whose lives have no meaning.
I find it interesting that one side of this axis of evil – the “progressive” – is ever striving to disarm the citizenry. The President, the Attorney General, the Mayor of New York, New York, California and Illinois Senators, Academia, race baiters like Al Sharpton and other radical leftists have been successful in denigrating our police forces, our borders, and the rule of law. Today, they had their comeuppance at the expense of the lives of two cops, their families and the freedoms we have enjoyed.
The other side, caliphatic jihad is sending out trained martyrs and terrorists with heaven in mind to do individual acts of murder and mayhem – all for Allah, of course. John 16:2 “… men will kill, thinking they are doing God a service.” (Jesus warned about what radical Muslims are doing today with impunity all over the world.) The cop killer took his own life after his despicable act. Was he martyring himself or just plain insane with hate? We may never know.
The time has come for the 2nd Amendment to receive its due respect by acknowledging every citizen (registered voter with photo ID) the right to carry. There is no way our police can protect us, no matter how “paramilitary” they become. They will always need citizen back up when the camel dung hits the fan… and it will.
For those who think a strong military or personal defense is counter to real life, consider Jesus’ admonition in Matthew 12:29 and Mark 9:40: “How can anyone enter a strong man’s house and make off with his property unless he first ties him securely? Only then can he rob his house. He who is not with me is against me…”
“As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15
